The Schools Initiative: Career Paths and Video Creation!public jobs



Dear Guidance Counsellors and Teachers,


As they journey through post primary education, your students may be beginning work experience and starting to think about the right career path for them. You can find everything you need to support your students in exploring career paths in the public sector by using The Public Jobs Schools Resource Kit!


“Great range of resources on offer which is a joy for teachers!”


Once your students are familiar with The Public Jobs Schools Resource Kit, it’s time to put their learning into action! The Pitch – The Schools Advertising Challenge is a fun and engaging competition where students create a short video promoting the public sector to their fellow students.


These video adverts can take many approaches, such as:

  • Pick someone you know who works in the public sector and pitch/sell their career path and role!
  • Promote a specific public sector role that you are interested in, learned about or researched.
  • Surprise us! Profile a role that no one expects to find in the public sector.
  • Show the range of opportunities and the many benefits of a career in the public sector.

The idea and the message of the adverts is the most important part – a phone camera will work for this! Many students will already be aware of free video-making software, where to find cool graphics and audio etc. Give them a chance to be the experts!

The Pitch entry deadline is March 10th 2023. However, we have an early deadline of December 7th 2022 - entering by this early deadline means students will be in with a chance to win a €200 voucher for their school!



If you have any questions, please contact us by emailing [email protected] or you can call us on 01 522 4861.
